JEWELLERY DESIGNER NOOR FARES HAS TWO NEW SUSTAINABLE COLLABORATIONS

Coloured gemstone mines haven’t always been as heavily scrutinised as diamond mines for things like sustainability and safety. But, the Muzo emerald mine in Colombia is changing that, sourcing stones through more sustainable practices, like using dynamite and supporting reforestation. Through collaborations with 25 jewellery designers, they are a part of producing beautiful, ethical pieces.

One of those designers is Noor Fares, a Lebanese jeweller who is inspired by the mystical powers of stones and gems, and produces all of her pieces sustainably. Using the Hexagonal Emeralds recovered from the Muzo mines, she has created bespoke pieces of jewellery that capture her ethos and the mine’s. Muzo not only mines ethically, but they also give back to the local communities and protect the landscape via hydroseeding and erosion control programs.

Noor’s stunning pieces from her Muzo collaboration are crafted with the same care she puts into all her pieces, and feature stunning accents like sapphires, amethyst and turquoise. The collection will be available from September 2019.

In addition to the Muzo collaboration, Noor Fares is also working with the Bibi Fund to help fundraise for pediatric cancer research.

As part of our fundraising efforts for pediatric cancer research, Noor Fares & the Bibi Fund have collaborated to fight these terrible diseases by funding innovative and deeply needed research. Through this partnership, Noor has designed a ring inspired by Bibi’s grandmother’s favourite piece. Focussed on love, the ring was designed to link to the heart chakra, and Noor named it The Bibi Ring in her honour. 75 percent of the profits from each sale will go back to the Bibi Fund.
